Solar Eclipse and 52 Weeks of ME 2012~ Week 21

There are certainly times when I'm not ashamed to admit that I am pretty disconnected from the world. I don't listen not watch the news. I'm not kidding. I catch the tiniest bit of news a few times a month. Unless it is BIG news and someone brings it to my attention.....I'm blissfully unaware.

Some might say that this is irresponsible, or that it makes me less intelligent, but I know what's right for me, and staying disconnected with the world stuff.....actually serves to keep me connect to the important stuff. I'm often too entirely sensitive. Watching the horrible things that happened around the world each and every day makes me a mess. I choose to let it go on around me while I simply live in my little world. I've got plenty of things to deal with in my own little corner. This doesn't mean, that I don't care....it just means, I don't allow myself to dwell.

  So.....I'm not surprised that I was caught unawares of the latest solar eclipse. It it hadn't been for facebook, Sugar Bear and I would have missed it. Not 5 minutes after reading a status update of a friend, you would have found me outside looking like this:

The theme/prompt for the week was:  UP

I'm definitely looking up!

Thanks to a husband that welds, Sugar Bear and I had the perfect eclipse watching gear.

It took me a bit of talking to get Sugar Bear interested in the eclipse. She didn't really grasp that these sorts of things don't actually happen all the time. Once that sunk in, she was good to go.

We passed the helmet back and forth, and snapped a few photos. It was cloudy, and somehow we missed the perfect ring of fire, but It was amazing none the less.

I'm glad that for a little while....on a special Sunday, I wasn't entirely disconnected from the rest of the world. I was just one of many....gazing up into the sky to watch the moon glide between us and the sun. AMAZING!

Can you believe I wasn't even interested. Busy with busy work, I guess. I'm blissfully unaware as well. I like it that way.

Niice! Very clever with the welding gear. I well remember keeping the BA up one night when she was about 7, to watch alunar eclise. There was a lot of ooohing and ahhing and then a quite decided..."so that was IT?" spoken scornfully by Little Miss, I Should Be In Bed....
